Evan Williams Single Barrel

Time to open the third window of our Whisky Advent Calendars and see what surprise lies behind it… why I think this is a bourbon… Yes, it’s Evan Williams Single Barrel Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey!

They’ve been producing Evan Williams at family-owned Heaven Hill since 1959 you know, and it’s named after the chap who was purportedly Kentucky’s first ever commercial distiller. I remember young Evan very well, of course, but as an omniscient supernatural being I’m not allowed to clear up these little historical facts for you I’m afraid. Rules is rules. Besides, there’s some delicious bourbon to taste…
